We recognize that our students may feel additional stress and anxiety during this period of uncertainty. Below, you'll find information with General Resources within Santa Clara County as well as High School Support staff that can assist you and/or your student.
If this is a medical or mental health emergency, please call 911 immediately for assistance. Other immediate assistance resources are:

The Student Service Center's goal is to support all students holistically - physically, academically, socially, and emotionally. Therefore, you can find the offices of two Assistant Principals, Guidance Counselors, Guidance Clerk/Registrar, Health Clerk, District Nurse, and UpLift and CASSY counselors. Please visit the webpage to get in contact via email.
  • UpLift Counseling Services - If you would like to make an appointment to speak with an UpLift Counselor, please contact your Guidance Counselor.

Prospect High School ensures that all students with exceptional needs are provided a free and appropriate public education and related services in the least restrictive environment. CUHSD, and by extension Prospect,  coordinates with school districts within the Special Education Local Planning Area (SELPA) and the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) to provide a continuum of services for students with special needs who are of high school age.  Please visit the webpage to get in contact with your student's case manager.
